    Caution –

    The following error will be generated if there is no certificatechain in the client certificate.


    This error is because the CA’s certificate was not imported intothe KeyStore first. You must import theCA's certificate (step 4), then import the client.cer file itself to forma certificate chain (step 5).

    Now that we have a private key and an associating certificate chainin the KeyStore clientkeystore, we canuse it as a KeyStore for client (adapter)authentication. The only warning is that the CA certificate must be importedinto the trusted certificate store of the web server to which you will beconnecting. Moreover, the web server must be configured for client authentication(httpd.conf for Apache, for example).
